Why Should We Gather?

imagesCharles Spurgeon once stated that

“Every Christian is like a brick.  We need to gather together so we can become a house.  Some people leave churches and are running around screaming I’M A HOUSE I’M A HOUSE!”

This past Sunday we shared why it is so important to gather together regularly as Christ followers.  I read a letter from a friend, co-church planter, and more importantly my own brother wrote about a year ago.  I read this without hesitation to our church this past Sunday.  Click here to read it.  In our groups all this week we will be wrestling with the following questions.  In the book of Acts it shares how the early church met regularly at the temple and in homes.  Many are all about Sundays and others are going the route that it is a lost cause and that we should adopt a “house church” mentality.  What are your thoughts?  Either way it doesn’t matter what you do as long as you gather.  It is when we don’t and make excuses, that the drifting and disconnect occurs.

  • Why do you think only 18% of our community goes to church?
  • Why do you think it is so important to gather on a Sunday?
  • What do you think happens to us personally when we make excuses and get out of the habit?
  • What was your inward response to the “church shopper” letter?
  • How can we keep The Well from being a cruise ship and making sure we remain a battle ship?
  • What can we do this week to invest and invite in our circle of relationships to fill empty seats?
  • How can we implement an Acts 2 Early church mentality?
